A coalition of environmental groups will plant native California greenery within the Fullerton Arboretum at Cal State Fullerton on Saturday. The event will begin at 9:30 a.m., and the public is invited, said Jack Heninger, executive director of the Tree Society of Orange County.
In addition to the Tree Society, other groups taking part will be Fullerton Beautiful, the Potters and the California Native Plant Society. The planting will take place on Chaparral Hill, in the northeast part of the arboretum on Yorba Linda Boulevard near the Orange Freeway.
“Many volunteers are needed to make light work for all and to complete the planting by noon,” Heninger said. “Volunteers need only a shovel and a desire to beautify a small corner of the earth.”
More than 100 plants are scheduled to be put in place during the day’s activity. Following the planting, volunteers will be eligible for a free drawing for greenery appropriate for the Christmas season. To volunteer, call the Tree Society at (714) 449-7170.
